Our society works. We have an intact constitutional state. And almost no violations of human rights. But, all of a sudden, you discover a crack in the system. How far do you go for justice? Yael Ronen and the ensemble engage in a loose dialogue with Michael Kohlhaas, Heinrich von Kleist's novella about justice, revenge and terror. Together, they develop a contemporary story that takes place between
Berlin and the Middle East: A German entrepreneur working with electric bicycles encounters a Palestinian cheese maker. Their biographies intersect through a traffic accident and tell of the pursuit of individual justice. Michael Kohlhaas, who Kleist called »one of the most righteous and at the same time most appalling men of his time«, serves as godfather.
